6:10 am
south korea saying it must stay but they've agreed to talk about that in the future that is encouraging it's one of those methods now of reducing tensions here because in the last few weeks the rhetoric between yang in the north and washington in particular with president trump has really gone up a ratcheting or two a couple of notches so there are concerns about the fire and fury and the threats of total destruction north korea the threats by north korea basically of a another nuclear nuclear test but this one atmospheric so a lot of concern and with president trump about to arrive in south korea in the next week there are concerns about what may happen both china and south korea in addition to these meetings that both reaffirmed their commitment to peace for ways of trying to get north korea to denuclearize that is actually good news everyone sees this is a very highly emotional and tense situation in korea and the korean peninsula and

very much there's concerns that it may lead to something happening for an unpredictable nature lots more sort of coming to an al-jazeera including a killing in colombia that's threatening an historic cease fire deal. plus anger in kenya after the weekend yet as declared the winner of the controversial presidential election rewrite more of that status. how i when i'm places say the weather is now quieting down across that northeastern corner of the end eyes his stacey can see the error cloud here making its way further northeast was at a little bit of a nor'easter which is filtered in across new england eastern parts of kind of that just a fair amount of rain lively waynes added they some coastal flooding as a result of that system coming through west of the weather will ease away as we go

6:13 am
with. documentaries that open your eyes at this time on al-jazeera. welcome back a quick recap of the top stories this hour the investigation into russian links with donald trump's presidential bid his former campaign manager pullman
6:14 am
a ford and his business associate charged with conspiring against the united states they pleaded not guilty third man who served as a campaign advisor has admitted lying to the f.b.i. about his contacts with moscow. spain's chief prosecutor seeking charges against several senior counsel and politicians over the recent votes on succession they could face up to thirty years in jail if convicted of rebellion sedition and embezzlement. and israeli forces have destroyed a tunnel in gaza killing at least eight people prime minister binyamin netanyahu says advanced location technology was used to identify the tunnel in the hardiness area and last has destroyed the killings as a dangerous escalation. well more now on our top story on the investigation into possible russian links with the president trumps election campaign john nichols is national affairs correspondent of the nation magazine he says one person in particular may become key to the investigation. i think papadopoulos is the bigger
6:15 am
story by any measure and that is because while man of ford is a known figure and certainly has been hit with a lot of very major charges along with gates it's papadopoulos who has acknowledged lying to the f.b.i. and that acknowledgement appears if we believe what we're being told odd to relate to efforts to connect the trunk campaign to the russians and so suddenly and very unexpectedly we have evidence that the miller investigation has gone much further much deeper into the truck campaign and much deeper into the most challenging issues for the truck campaign and i think most people expected what hit today it was much bigger than than just one indictment coming down the combination of the man of four gates indictments twelve indictments a very major issues and the papadopoulos indictment or actually acknowledgment of the admission of wrongdoing and
6:16 am
a conviction that's that's something that has caused republicans in congress to back off i think a lot of republican media folks to kind of pause for a moment and the word from the white house is that this day is really sort of not the white house back on its feet there they're struggling to figure out you know how to respond and what their approach will be from here on out so i'm not sure that they feel the confidence that they felt a few days ago that they could they could ride this up now the future of an historic cease fire deal in colombia is in doubt often on group admitted killing an indigenous leadership the national liberation army known as the u.n. says it was questioning ali afghanistan have on the links to colombia's intelligence services when he tackled one of its members it says he was shot in self-defense on friday colombia's president said at the end killed for a stand up it would constitute a breach of the deal and us on one pitch he has more from bogota. in a statement the year len leadership said that one of its unique shot the
6:17 am
indigenously there after detaining him for questioning he was accused of being a military informant in the western region of choke or. deeply regret for this incidental but also insisted in their statement that there was no order to kill or harm the indigenous leader in any way and nonetheless this is of course a major flub on part of the rebels and a breach of the cease fire they had started just a month ago that cease fire deal will stand at least for now because according to the protocols of the cease fire and incidental however serious this is not mean and out and i think and to the cease fire or did talks there is however increasing criticism coming from the opposition here in colombia and even among many government officials about the wisdom of continuing the talks with your land which
6:18 am
will become only worse if the u.n. decides not to turn in those responsible for the killing syrian government forces of storm one of the last neighborhoods held by eisold in the eastern city of daraa zoar idea is the most populous area still under the armed groups control the syrian army broke isolates for years siege on goes off last month the seventh round of talks aimed at ending syria's six year war have begun in kazakhstan's capital of the meetings expected to call for a ceasefire between government forces and rebel groups for at least six months the talks are sponsored by iran and russia who support the syrian government and turkey which backs the rebels. u.s. president donald trump says a libyan man linked to a twenty twelve attack on an american diplomatic compound in benghazi has been captured attackers killed the ambassador to libya and three other americans in a statement trump says special forces picked up. in an operation in libya he says will face justice in the united states staying in libya at least eleven people have
6:19 am
been killed in for a strike in the city of in the east of the country witnesses say civilian areas were hit with women and children among the dead they've been celebrations and protests in kenya where her kenyatta has been declared the winner of the presidential election rerun results show he took ninety eight point two percent of the vote but the opposition has dismissed his victory citing low voter turnout so we the miller reports from nairobi. the official announcement that who are kenyatta had secured his second term in office was no surprise for millions of kenyans but a low voter turnout of eighty eight percent has raised questions around the legitimacy of the selection which was ordered by the supreme court after it's an old presidential vote saying the electoral commission had committed illegalities.
6:20 am
once. all thank you. rehabilitation. state. for. trace. the rerun was marred by violent protests when opposition leader raila odinga and his national super alliance party boycotted the election preventing at least one point eight million kenyans in opposition strongholds from voting. in total at least twelve million kenyans stayed away from the polls observer mission say besides the impact of the boycott violence and intimidation kept many of the voters away from polling stations. joe you
6:21 am
described the vote as a sham with the electoral commission not making the reforms the opposition had demanded for it to participate in the vote virtually every other issue that we raised that last time is present in this election. and what has happened is that this time around i think i was in a crisis is legitimacy a crisis or trying to shore up the numbers so that it appears that there is a legitimate mandate for president and in the course of they have done unimaginable things i can think of at least seventeen different grounds for question even if the election is challenged at the supreme court there are concerns the courts may not act independently concerns around the independence of the judiciary was heightened when the court refused to hear a petition to perspire own last week's rerun saying there weren't enough judges present whether or not this election is challenge legally they are many kenyans
6:22 am
that hope this final announcement will bring months of political tensions and uncertainty to an end but as kenya to address the nation are asking for unity protests began hitting fears of both political and ethnic rivalries are far from over. now the trial of cambodia's opposition leader is now getting underway was arrested last september he is charged with treason accused of collaborating with the u.s. to overthrow the country's ruling party if he's convicted he faces up to thirty years in prison when hey joins us live now from the capital phnom penh windsor just bring us up to date is actually in court today. so there is no sign of the leader of the opposition party the cambodian national rescue party we've seen some of his lawyers going into the supreme court behind me but we are told himself is still in prison that prison located some one hundred
6:23 am
fifty kilometers outside the capital phnom penh this happened last month as well when he was supposed to be in court to appeal against his pretrial detention at that time he was told he could not leave prison for his own safety apparently this time he has been told that he does not need to be in court today the lawyers are asking again for his pretrial detention to come to an end but the court is saying that the lawyer is the questions in court so no sign of him so at the moment still quite a heavy security presence outside the supreme court as security forces try to keep away any supporters from coming here to show their backing for the leader of the opposition and just remind us wayne was this trial about them. well this specifically relates to a speech in two thousand and thirteen four years ago that came so he gave in
6:24 am
australia in that speech he talked about wanting to change the political makeup in cambodia seemingly fairly innocently with advice that he had received from foreign governments including from the united states now the government of prime minister who's been in power for more than thirty years has interpreted that as being treasonous and so arrested him on the third of september the opposition says this is this has nothing to do with the law this is all about politics it's all about the government led by one sin being afraid of losing the general election in july next year and so wanting to stamp out any credible opposition any credible threats to his power and this is not an isolated case the previous leader of the c.n.r. be sam rainsy voiding a jail term for defamation and now the government has asked the courts to completely disband the cambodian national risky party in a court case is due to start on the sixteenth of november when hey they're incompetent way thank you now us university professor abducted by the taliban in
